Today we interview Adefolashade Fadeyi
The Brighter Girls team is led by her founder Adefolashade Fadeyi, a Person Development Expert for Teens. A Certified Girl Empowerment Coach, Trained Youth Mentor and a Curriculum Developer with over 15 years of experience working with teen girls. Her dream to work with girls started as a teen which led her to speaking to girls in secondary schools within her community. She went on to co-found a Girl organization in her university where she organized programs centered on faith and girl empowerment.
She has since continued to work with hundreds of girls in different capacities. She’s run teen workshops in churches and schools, created signature workshops, organised parenting conferences and served on parent and teachers association board. A sought after speaker, Folashade was the speaker at the 2019 Valedictory Service at the British International School, Lagos.
“I hope to see girls live consciously from within. I want them to know there is enormous power within them and if they believed in themselves, commit to harnessing their uniqueness and potentials, they will become their best versions, living fulfilling lives; this is a key to changing Africa”.
